A dark love story featuring a young Bram Stoker takes readers back to 1880s England where the young, recently married writer is beginning work on a new novel called Dracula.

Blackwell North Amer
One long, hot summer in 1886 Bram Stoker escaped from the pressures of theater life in London to the seaside town of Whitby. These months are unaccounted for, and around them Ann Victoria Roberts has woven a mysterious and enthralling novel.
It is during a violent storm on the coast of Whitby that Mr. Stoker meets Damaris, a local nineteen-year-old girl who has lost both her parents. In spite of the age difference and Mr. Stoker's wife, the two become entangled in a passionate affair that dramatically alters the course of both their lives. Throughout their affair, Mr. Stoker is introduced to the wild sea, the wrecks, and local legends of Whitby - many of whom make their way into Dracula. Damaris, in turn, learns about passion, love, and betrayal.
Roberts has seamlessly combined fact and fiction to bring us an irresistible novel that is both love story and literary history.
